I've been using a silicon skin since I got my Bold last week. I work from home and wear the cargo type shorts year round... so the skin protects my Bold and I just drop it on one of the big pockets... haven't found a holster that I like, so this works for me.

I am looking for a "wallet" type case. Something that I can place my Bold 9000 - the bluetooth and wallet stuff. Any idea? I can not find anything !!!
Thanks

The case that came with it, blackberry gives your a leather case specifically made for your phone. The bold does not scratch easily either if you have it out of case.

I work at a AT&T store and we sell alot of cases and this one is probably the best for the BOLD IMO... doesnt "stick" to the inside of your pocket like other gel skins and it covers the keys aswell... just dont get the case-mate battery doors.. they are cheap cheap cheap.

Best case is no case. Cases are retarded, IMO. How bout you buy a case to protect the case? why protect something that will never be shown off?

If you want protection from scratches, then use invisishield.

ZAGG | invisibleSHIELD | BlackBerry Bold 9000 Cases, Screen Protectors, Covers, Shields, Skins, Invisible Shield

They also sell them in bestbuy if there is one near you.

How are you going to use an IS shield on a bold? Maybe just the front pcs. I was always curious how and why you would want to stick the IS film over the leather backing on the phone ? Has someone actually done this ? Also does it work

I really do want to get this case. After reading reviews it obviously has problems where after awhile it starts to lose its shape around the phone covering up the microphone, speaker,etc my question is it worth the 20.oo plus shipping?

I bought a full body shield from ebay because just the screen was like 2 bucks cheaper than the whole bold so it would have been better to buy the whole body shield. The shield is definitely scratch-proof and the shield make the phone feel smoother (my cousin has it on her iphone) and it feels really nice. If you don't like how it feels then you can always take it off.

I just got the invisible shield, and put it on, too bad your phone has to be off for 12-24hrs before using. If you will buy this product, make sure you get the screen only, I made the biggest mistake of getting full body.

Update: Invisible Shield is the biggest piece of shit I have ever used, a big waste of 20 bucks. Its nearly impossible to install and you cannot use it for 24hrs straight.
